Easter is not just one Sunday in spring
As we approach the day the Christian community calls Easter, it would behoove us to remember how we got to this place.
The Day of Resurrection is a celebration of life. Jesus’ life. And the offer of life to whosoever will receive it. This is an astounding invitation. And a completely unequaled exchange.
His life for mine.
My debt paid by Him who had none.
His righteousness becoming my righteousness.
His inheritance shared with me.
His death bringing me, the broken, sinful one, a new lease on life.
Abundant life. Eternal life.
Present grace and future glory.
All because of a cross, a grave, an empty tomb, and a Love that would rather die than live without me.
Miraculous. Merciful. Grace.
